Stayed in a standard double for two nights. The house has lots of character and is well apportioned just of the main road into Grasmere with plenty of parking. The B&B sits right next to the Wordsworth cottage with Grasmere town centre only a 5 min walk away. Booking the B&B was easy over the phone but as booking confirmation is not sent out I'd recommend you ask the owners to email this to avoid double booking errors.
The room we stayed in was large and roomy with a view over the lake. The room was very clean but was starting to show signs of wear and could desperately do with a revamp. Bathroom was also large and consisted of shower over a bath, note that only a bar of soap is provided so don't forget to pack your shampoo! The bathroom could also do with an extractor fan as it got very steamy.
Breakfasts were fine, I'd recommend the continental with was very enjoyable. However, steer clear of the poached eggs as these are like bullets. The breakfast room is also pleasant with a log file on the go on those chilly mornings. The price being charged for the room was also reasonable and the establishment represents good value if that's what you are looking for.
